Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) spokesperson Rakesh Tikait on Friday said the ongoing farmers’ protest will go on for indefinite period as there is no planning regarding the duration yet,” reported ANI.
“Farmers’ protest will go on for an indefinite period as there is no plan currently. It might continue till October,” Tikait told the agency. Tikait had earlier warned the farmers’ agitation will not conclude unless the government repeals the three newly enacted agriculture laws and it may go on till October.
Asked about the debates in the Parliament on the farmers’ issues, Tikait said it is good that the issue is being raised and debated in the Parliament.
Farmers have been protesting on the different borders of the national capital since November 26 against the three newly enacted farm laws: Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and farm Services Act 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
